The Story

There are no secrets for the production of these remarkable wines, simply attention to all the many small details in both growing grapes with great flavour, and producing wines of great purity and balance. In the vineyard yields are kept incredibly low with each vine limited to just 3 bunches of grapes. In the cellar vinification is done either in small new oak for the “Nouvelle Vague” (“new wave”) wines, or in large old wood for the more traditional “Zwischen den Seen” (“between the lakes”) wines. Sulphur levels are kept to a minimum and there is no malolactic fermentation for the wines in order to maintain the high levels of natural acidity. In the best years a “Grande cuvee” TBA will be produced. This is the wine which Luis feels best expresses the character of the vintage and what he aims to achieve

Inside Information

The “Seewinkel” is an area in the Burgenland region of western Austria, approximately 20 km wide, along the eastern shore of Lake Neusiedl. It is an immense plain, with countless shallow lakes of various sizes scattered throughout it. Most of these lakes, including the largest, Lake Neusiedl, are less than five feet deep. The continental climate brings hot dry summers and very cold winters. These extremes create a unique microclimate for viticulture. During cool autumn evenings, evaporation from the numerous lakes creates heavy fog, which covers the area until midday when the still strong sunlight burns through. This helps to create the necessary conditions for the formation of the noble rot “botrytis cinerea” which gives these wines the immense concentration and balance for the production of great sweet wines.
